Jane Fielding (vcl), Joe Maini (as), Ted Efantis (ts), Kenny Drew (p), Leroy Vinnegar, Paul Chambers (b), Lawrence Marable (d) / Lou Levy (p), Red Mitchell (b). Capitol Recording Studios, Hollywood, August 29, 1955.
Tracks #1-10, from the album “Embers Glow” (Jazz:West JWLP-5). Tracks #11-20, from the album “Jazz Trio For Voice, Piano and String Bass” (Jazz:West JWLP-3). Tracks #21 & 22, form the album “Sessions, Live – Oscar Peterson-Gerald Wiggins” (Calliope CAL3001).
Jane Fielding was only 21 when she made these recordings in 1956. Her voice, low and warm, with a fine phrasing, revealed a natural affinity for jazz, something confirmed by the calibre of the stellar West Coast jazzmen she could call on for these rare examples of her fine talent. They are the only two albums she recorded for Jazz:West, a small, Label based in Hollywood. On the first she’s backed by a Quality quintet led and arranged by pianist Kenny Drew, with two outstanding saxophonists, altoist Joe Maini and tenor Ted Efantis, and a rhythm section including Leroy Vinnegar—sharing bass duties with Paul Chambers—and drummer Lawrence Marable. Drew’s beguiling charts blend beautifully with Jane’s singing.
The second album, made six months earlier, embraces a more intimate mood, and her musical empathy with Lou Levy and Red Mitchell is confirmed by the jazz-trio effect they achieve. Included as a bonus are two songs she performed on the Stars of Jazz TV show in 1957. She sings so well on these sessions—and with such an innate feel for jazz—that it makes the fact she enjoyed such a brief career on the mid-fifties West Coast scene all the more extraordinary. And disappointing.
